First Travel Trailer.... From Central Texas

Good Afternoon campers. My self and wife purchased a 2021 Aspen Trail3280BHS. We have 3 kids and 2 dogs. So we needed the space. We joined to get information from other Dutchmen owners and learn a lot from the seasoned campers. We live just north of Austin in Leander, Texas.

Hope yall have a great 2021 and look forward to joining the group.

I did not notice anything about a battery disconnect switch in the 12 volt article. So for any stored (or just not used for month or so) put in a battery disconnect switch as the ones that come with the rig do not totally disconnect the battery(s). Install in the negative side of the battery. I put mine on the back of the battery box.

Welcome! The wife and I have a 2020 Aspen trail 2750BHSWE and so far it has been good! Had a couple warranty problems that were fixed but otherwise we have enjoyed it! Good information on here and friendly members! Got a question just ask!
